Rumors of an HBO/Netflix Partnership Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

Posted Thu Jul 26, 2012 at 09:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

We’re not going to be seeing streaming HBO content any time soon.

The folks at Netflix have been chasing HBO for quite some time now and it seemed that they had finally reached an accord – at least if you believe rumors and speculation. As it turns out, they haven’t, and things are going to stay as normal for the streaming company.

Netflix CEO Reed Hastings has been actively, even publically courting HBO for years. He knows, after all, just how big a deal it would be to get shows like ‘True Blood,’ and ‘Game of Thrones’ as streaming titles. Of course, former HBO CEO Jeff Bewkes has just as publically stated that it’s not going to happen.

There’s always the chance that something will happen between these two in the future, but for now it’s a big fat “no.”
